Coverage improvement and extension requests
During 2018, Ofcom invited community radio stations to submit requests for coverage improvements and extensions if they wished. During the last month the services listed below have had their requests provisionally agreed, subject to the new technical arrangements going through our usual formal clearance process (this includes Ofcom liaising with a number of outside agencies before changes can be implemented).
|Amber Sound 107.2 FM||Ripley, Derbyshire|
|Black Country Radio||Stourbridge, West Midlands|
|Chelmsford Community Radio||Chelmsford, Essex|
|North Manchester FM||North Manchester|
|Penistone FM||Penistone, South Yorkshire|
|Radio Verulam||St Albans, Hertfordshire|
|Seaside Radio||Withernsea, Humberside|
|TCR FM||Tamworth, Staffordshire|
|TD1||Galashiels, Scottish Borders|
|The Eye||Vale of Belvoir|
|Wey Valley Radio||Alton, Hants|
|Your FM||Stockport, Cheshire|
Please note: Ofcom received over 130 requests in total for an improvement or an extension from existing community radio stations. It will take us some time to complete all the work required to assess each one; we are dealing first with requests for improvements before we turn to extension requests.
